Kevin was born in South Bend IN, while his father was earning his PhD at Notre Dame. In 1964, the family moved to New Jersey and Kevin was given the usual parochial school education, until he won a scholarship to Regis High School in NYC, a Jesuit, all-scholarship, high school for academically talented young men. After Regis, Kevin went to Haverford College where he majored in English, graduating in 1982.
Returning to New York, Kevin began acting in summer stock productions, earning his Equity card in 1988. He completed a two-year Meisner Technique program under the tutelage of Edward Moor, late of the Neighborhood Playhouse. He moved to San Francisco in 1989, where he began to concentrate on writing, while pursuing a teaching career and later attending law school. He graduated from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1995, but returned to teaching instead of law practice.
In 2005, having written extensively and produced his first short film, Kevin moved to Los Angeles to more aggressively market his screen and stage plays, picking up some writing awards and accolades along the way. He also went back to acting class, studying Meisner Technique in the Graduate Class at the William Alderson Studio. He is a member of SAG-AFTRA. In 2010, Kevin moved back to New Jersey to care for his ailing father. He now lives in Kenilworth, NJ.
